Looking back. Looking ahead.

Since 2014, Let’s Move Quad Cities has celebrated Quad Citians’ resilience in their journey to a better, fitter and healthy life. In this issue, we celebrate our favorite stories from 2023, with the hope you’ll join us at our new home at ORA Orthopedics’ Forward Motion news platform in 2024.

Success Stories

Some high-flyin' success stories kept us moving through the year

From getting back into the WWE ring, to reaching the goal of simply cheering Iowa’s Caitlyn Clark, read a few of our favorite patient success stories and those we were so proud to meet. And we’re excited to meet more patients and physicians at ORA in 2024. You’ve inspired us all!

ORA Health Tips

Staying healthy is a team sport

In 2023, ORA welcomed Physical Therapists on board to its new ORA PT practice. These dedicated professionals shared their knowledge and specialization in running and aquatic therapy. In the coming year, watch for more “how-to” expertise from the leading PT practice in the QC.

QC Outdoors

Take to the trails on two feet (or four)

Scouting the best hiking trails in 100 miles, our outdoor bloggers, Teri Stickler, and her four-footed friend, Kaia, shared every step of their journeys, despite a canine orthopedic setback from our favorite Samoyed last spring. Stay in touch to more quarterly dispatches from this duo in 2024!

Eat Smart with Jeni

The more you know, the better you eat

Since 2014, we’ve followed the advice of our favorite dietary blogger, Jeni Tackett, through the challenging motherhood years of keeping her (and our) kids healthy at the ballpark, on road trips, and packing school lunches. Now she’s an empty-nester in 2023 and cooking for two. We’ll see you, Jeni, back at Forward Motion in 2024.

2023 Bloggers

The varied voices of LMQC

At Let’s Move QC, we’ve also had the privilege of meeting some of our community’s most dedicated, athletic, and inspiring event organizers. From midlife weight loss to the rigors of RAGBRAI, kayaking and marathoning, let’s keep moving in 2024!
